Hi, I really want to get my pick chops happening, but I keep running into brick walls. The sound I aspire to would be that of old school P-bass pick players like Bob Daisley. My current attempts have led me to the following problems/questions. - should the pick be held so that there is a slight give when I make an down or up stroke or should it be held tight enough so that it does not move? - should the angle at which the pick hits string change between up strokes and down strokes? I currently have an unwanted scrape to my sound. - my palm muting sounds bad when. My down strokes have a certain degree of fatness in sound, but my up strokes sound 'uhhh'. - should I tilt my wrist in towards the bass slightly or let it sit where gravity sends it? It seems like such a simple thing for most, but the humble pick is causing me much drama. If anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
